I have been working at H E B

Pros

Awesome job for college students, they always work with your availability and offer very competitive pay($9 an hour), that pays weekly. If you want more hours you can easily pick up shifts.You also get 10% off on all HEB products and a free product every other week.

Cons

At my store there are 110 baggers and checkers, some of the managers do not know my name, without looking at my name tag.Depending on the time of the year hours can be scarce. When the store is busy you can expect late breaks, and if its not busy you may be sent home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to get to know your partners, maybe a store/department social get together

    Current Employee - Department Manager  in  Laredo, TX
    Current Employee - Department Manager in Laredo, TX

    I have been working at H E B full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is a very good job if you are able to manage your time, for all of the work that is needed to be done.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get job promotions from within. Company has bulk interviews with people that already work for the company, in group format. But will have one on one interviews with outside hires. Most cases they have no experience and others are much more qualified to handle this position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and promote from within. They will not promote you, if you have no experience in the area. But will not train you before you apply for the position.

    Current Employee - Bakery Department Manager  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Bakery Department Manager in Austin, TX

    I have been working at H E B full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Company offers quite a bit for their employees and seems to really care about their employees. Company parties and meals to celebrate holidays and sales records.

    Cons

    As a department manager expect to get moved to different stores, sometimes far away from where you live. Expected to work 50hrs a week but it usually ends up being 60+ hrs.Expect to do monthly physical inventories and work most holidays especially in the bakery. They use an occurance system for time and attendance which some employees can easily abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better organization and perhaps revamping some policies especially when dealing with occurrences in time and attendance.
